About the test

This Spatial Reasoning assessment is meticulously curated to evaluate candidates' abilities to visualize and manipulate objects in space. Questions probe into various aspects of spatial understanding, including the prediction of shapes' movements, rotation effects, understanding of perspectives, and the ability to deduce 3D objects from 2D representations. It tests the ability to mentally rotate, flip, or slide objects, and assesses understanding of complex geometric principles. These tasks are crucial for roles that demand the visualization of complex forms, architecting structures in space, or the creation and interpretation of maps. Spatial reasoning capabilities are an essential component of numerous technical and design-oriented professions, making this test an invaluable tool for identifying candidates equipped with high-level spatial cognition and the mental agility to navigate, manipulate, and create within a spatial context.
